this job wants you to know a little about SAP.

I looked it up and everyone agrees that it is impossible to know a little bit about SAP.

*shrugs*
Can't be that important.

Colleague just told me to be careful nobody sees me with my phone because that might reflect badly on the department. It didn't even occur to me that this could be a thing! I mean I was somewhat careful to only look at my phone when my bosses know I have nothing to do, and I am amazed by the social intricacies of this place.

Hey, ähm, wer bisher keinen Zugang zu eduroam hatte wegen der klassistischen Barrieren...

Es gibt da so einen Geheimtrick über die Hochschule Hamm-Lippstadt (einfach als Externe in der Bibliothek anmelden, ist gratis und hat keine Hürden außer dass ihr mal hinfahren und euren Perso vorzeigen müsst) :3

Anyway, 9/16 done, 7 half hours to go!

Will somewhat overextend my lunch break now to make sure I'm ready for indoors boredom until someone shows me how to use the program at a vaguely defined point in time.

My favourite pide shop is closed, how much more hardship could possibly come my way?

Had rather dry and sad pide from a different bakery. Remembering the good pide longingly.

To be fair ppl should be showing me stuff but everyone's too busy and also I don't have access to the database yet and thus my only task so far was ro read a manual, which I have now finished.

(The manual was a powerpoint presentation, with all the repetition that happens in those.)

It's day two and I'm finding myself ticking off the half hours in my head. 6 of 16 done, 10 to go! That's almost close to half time. Rly looking forward to lunch break (which is also half an hour that counts).

Lock up my bike around the corner probably, not right in front of the closest entrance that everyone who works in that department uses

Ok so how do i do the thing where I show up to the office exactly on time, so as to neither be late nor spend any unnecessary minute in there

In case you ever wanted to go straight to Pound Town, I think I should let you know about it.

It seems like a nice place. They abolished their police department.

Have you considered the Use Case where the User is angry with you, doesn't like you, doesn't like your Product (tm), thinks your entire socio-economic class are measurably making everything worse and accelerating a global slide into fascism, genocide and extinction, and is only sullenly interacting with your Product (tm) at the cracking point of the harsh whip of capitalism because they will lose the ability to eat if they do not

because you might find that's quite a large class of users

Do you know anyone interested in getting paid to improve #diversity in a Free Software project? Boost appreciated!

@fedeproxy, a new Free Software project for #forge #federation published a request for proposal today. If you have some expertise on fostering diversity in Free Software communities, this is your chance to make a difference, at a very early stage. And maybe set a good example for the thousands of other Free Software projects in the same situation.
